What Educators Have to Say

"I had been avoiding media projects because I wasn't comfortable, but now I’m looking forward to it. The lessons really walk you through the student experience, which is so effective." High School Librarian

"In the Video Production course, I made a short video which I showed to a fifth grade class. It was SO MUCH FUN! Their eyes were glued to the screen (an achievement to have such focus) and they responded thoughtfully and went on to write some amazing stories." —Elementary Teacher      

NAMLE selected KQED's Educator Certification for their 2022 Media Literate Media Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to media literacy.
